Talk #1 – What you can not do? – Thoughts on Security and Privacy in a 5G Connected World
Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben wrote that man is no longer limited by what is technologically impossible, but what it is becoming unacceptable not to do. With 5G networks offering the promise of ubiquitous data connectivity and context-awareness through machine to machine communications, how do we protect users and their privacy, while still designing innovative services? This talk will examine the concept of privacy, and the requirements of security in mobile systems, and offer examples of how innovate services can be designed with 4G and future 5G systems which protect both. It will also show examples of where poor design has threatened security, with lessons for application developers.
